Problems in the post-modern mind

Standard

“What the post-modern mind is aware of is that there are problems in human and social life with no good solutions, twisted trajectories that cannot be straightened up, ambivalences that are more than linguistic blunders to be corrected, doubts which can not be legislated out of existence, moral agonies which no reason directed recipes can soothe let alone cure. The post-modern mind does not expect any more to find an all-embracing and ultimate formula of life without ambiguity, risk, danger and error, and is deeply suspicious of any voice that promises otherwise.” ~ Zygmunt Bauman
